Research Institutes and Projects
The Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS conducts applied research on high-performance ceramics. The institutes three sites in Dresden and Hermsdorf (Thuringia), Germany, collectively represent Europes largest R&D institute dedicated to the study of ceramics.
Fraunhofer IKTS uses its know-how in materials science and technical manufacturing solutions to develop materials, manufacturing methods and innovative battery designs – always with an eye on applicability. In doing so, the complete value-added chain can be covered, from the laboratory scale through to full-scale industrial production. For this purpose, Fraunhofer IKTS has highly modern plants and analytical equipment at its disposal, which are used for examining new cost-efficient processes and acquiring a deeper understanding of the operation and aging of battery storage solutions.
